All of the Finger Lakes — Canadice, Canandaigua, Cayuga, Conesus, Hemlock, Honeoye, Keuka, Otisco, Owasco, Seneca, and Skaneateles — are all natural and each around 40 miles in length and as deep as 618 feet in places. Lake Ontario and the Erie Canal both lie to the north. Those aren’t the only bodies of water in the area, but they are among the most impressive. The Finger Lakes - Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance has programs to aid in the stewardship and preservation of water resources.
All of that history and beauty needs to be protected, and while wheel-in or sectional docks are feasible in some areas, if your shoreline is particularly deep, the legs might not reach the bottom. If floating boat docks are for sale near you, it’s probably worth the investment. They’re stable and built to withstand the natural wear and tear of the water, seasonal changes, and the installation and removal process. They automatically adjust to shifting water levels. Since they’re only secured in the water with a gangway and some anchorage, they have minimal impact on the bottom of the water, making them close to ideal for protecting the water and ecosystem underneath.
The water of Finger Lakes has much to offer, whether you’re just visiting or you’re here forever. Sightseeing, boating, and fishing are only a few of the options available to water lovers in the area. For those setting up their own personal retreat, the right accessories are a must.
Do you fish? A rod holder that attaches to the side of your dock, and can be easily moved to where the fish are, can free up your hands when something else needs your attention. Some seating and tables are essential for using your boat dock as an outdoor entertainment space. A canopy can protect your head from all kinds of weather, a fire table can keep things cozy late into the night, and a grill can help you feed your loved ones. For the canoer, kayaker, or other water sports enjoyer, you’ll need places to stash your equipment by the water but safely out of the way. And those are just a few of the possibilities.
